    Eating chewing gum and roasted peanut together, at the same time quaffing herbal tea. How's that?
    • Nose
      79 79
      The nose started with whole wheat bread and cereal bar. There're chocolate chunk and dried raspberry. But sadly these all didn't last long enough. There's also peanut oil, and spiciness that one could find in single pot still whiskey. There's also some sour pressed sugar candy floating at the back.
    • Taste
      78 78
      The mild mouthfeel quickly turned dry. Lot of grape flavour chewing gum, which felt not very natural! There're roasted peanuts too. A cool feeling developed under the tongue, which is also unusual.
    • Finish
      77 77
      More, so much more, chewing gum, which left quite an uneasy feeling. Herbal tea lingered, and full of plastic! Well...remarkable!
